The TB deaths and new cases to date for the year 2013

These counters are based on the current number of cases (and deaths) reported and the rate of increase for both. Statistics were obtained from: the CDC(states 9 million active cases) and the NIAID at the NIH(states 8 million active cases). Both state 2 million deaths. Counting begins on Jan 1, 2013.

Counting is determined by:

Number of news cases each year / days / minutes / hours / seconds = rate of new cases per second

9000000 new cases of active TB each year
(((9000000.0 / 365.0) / 24.0) / 60) / 60 = 0.27 new cases per second

2000000 deaths by TB per year
(((2000000.0 / 365.0) / 24.0) / 60) / 60 = 0.063 deaths per second
